Nike regional at LaVerne course

Can someone give me some insight on where the course is and where good places are to stay? Planning on a team trip post season.

Lavern Gibson is east of the Terre Haute airport on Tabortown St. I'd bet hotels in TH are priced rather high, but you might find something. Greencastle, IN, is only 40-45 minutes away. They are a college town (Depauw), so I'd suspect they'd have something.

Cool course. Fair course. Hotels in Terre Haute are probably booked solid. They go fast. The course itself sits out a ways at the Wabash Valley Family Sports Center.

The course is a more hilly, less smooth and slightly curvier version of Cedarville IMHO. It is not particularly fast. It is a real XC course compared to most of the OH sites we compete. More spectator friendly than Cedarville and much better parking, but kind of in the middle of nowhere.

Hotels might be tight in the low cost arena. Indy is not that far away, kind of like going to a normal SW OH meet.

Most of the hotels are actually in Cloverdale. Cloverdale is the area off of 70 before going north on 231 toward Greencastle/DePauw. I've had to stay in that area in the past. There are probably a few national chain hotels and perhaps a few independents. Don't expect there to be any good restaurants right there at that exit. There is probably some fast food, a diner, and maybe a few pizza joints. There isn't much around there.

We stayed at the Motel 6 in Cloverdale last year, it's about half an hour from the course and and easy drive. We ate dinner at a pizza place near the hotel the night before and at McDonalds across the road the next morning. We booked through travelocity and paid $59 with tax for the room (two queen beds). It was nice enough.

And actually, I just looked at my reservations from last year and I booked on October 5 last year so you should be okay.

There is a brand new Best Western at the Brazil exit which is closer to the course. I stayed there earlier this year and it is very nice.
